  • Applications, Chats, Files, Keystrokes, Locations, Screenshots, Sessions, Websites, Windows
    Enable or disable the selected monitoring type for that particular user.  For example, if 'keystrokes' is disabled for a particular user then SentryPC will not record any keystrokes made for that user.
  • SS Rate
    This is the rate at which screenshots are recorded for the user in seconds.  For example, if 120 seconds was set then every two minutes a screenshot would be recorded for that user.  Remember, screenshot monitoring must be enabled in the first place for this to have any affect.
  • Idle Timeout
    This is a value in minutes where the user is idle (inactive) on the computer.  When this set amount of time is reached SentryPC will go into an idle state also.  If the user should resume activity on the computer at any time during this stage then SentryPC will resume into normal operation as well.
  • Splash Screen
    If enabled a 'splash' warning screen will be displayed to the user explaining that their computer activity is being monitored, filtered, and controlled.  An icon will also show in the taskbar of the desktop which serves two purposes : first it visibly shows that SentryPC is running and secondly it allows the user to view the time schedule you setup for them (what hours they are allowed to use the computer).  Remember, if you want the software to perform in stealth this option should be disabled.
